"LISIEUX" - Basilique

This is a precious circulated postcard dated 27.09.1951 traveled from France to Cape Verde (the Tarrafal prison).
The Cape Verde archipelago was at that time a Portuguese colony and Tarrafal prison in Santiago island was the most feared jail, where Salazar "accomodeted" his largest political opponents, in infra-human conditions, where prisoners often dead.
This postcard contains only a short message - "During my vacation, I'm sending you a big hug".
